  6. 🎥 NEW VIDEO MONDAY! Here’s a throwback: a home movie I made when I was a kid, recreating the commercials for Atari Lynx. Who remembers these Lynx commercials from the ‘90s?

  11. 📰 Google paid $58.1 million for the Atari building at 1272 Borregas Ave.  This building was home to 2600 games development and all the zany things that went on there. The Mercury News has a nice article on this which quotes Atari I/O: https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/07/01/google-grabs-an-early-atari-building-in-north-sunnyvale-deals-widen/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
